mexico. they've just now given the weather clear. ginger zee has done a lot of crazy stuff for the sake of this broadcast. what do you think? >> right after felix does it. >> he's setting the bar high. >> that's the proper attitude of caution. who says becoming a parent means giving up any daredevil indulgences? one dad satisfied his need for speed with this souped up stroller. peter, i hope you're not watching. we're going switch gears. beginning with the breaking news out of colorado and the hunt for a child predator. police are investigating an attempted abduction overnight, following the disappearance and murder of 10-year-old jessica ridgeway. no word if there is a connection yet. an entire community is on edge. here's abc's clayton sandell.
>> reporter: in a community attempted abduction, just 12 miles down the road from where jessica ridgeway was killed. someone tried to snatch a 13-year-old boy. his mom snapped a picture of this car. >> i think all children should pay attention to what they're doing. >> reporter: there is sadness, anger, fear. >> this is horrible. absolutely horrible. >> reporter: that a kirl is on the loose. >> i want to stress that we recognize there is a predator at large in our community. >> reporter: jessica's dismembered body was found wednesday, seven miles from where she disappeared october 5th walking to school. fbi profilers believe the suspect is male. might have left work, changed
his appearance or car. >> we're talking and conveying to the community the importance of looking at behavioral changes. unfortunately, it's somebody's family member. a neighbor, a friend. >> reporter: dozens of worried residents came to tom for crisis counseli counseling. >> there's a level of fear and anxiety. are we safe? >> reporter: at the park near jessica's house, there is a growing memorial. >> all: three, two, one. >> reporter: in a community that desperately needs its spirits lifted, and a kirl brought to justice. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, westminster, colorado. >> jarring to hear the police say a predator is on the loose. let's go to ron claiborne with more news. we're going to begin with the collision between two navy
ships. the pentagon is investigating. this cruiser and this submarine collided yesterday. the sub's nuclear-powered reactor was not affected. no one was injured. collisions between submarines and warships are very rare. the last one happened 2009. the toll from the deadly meningitis outbreak has risen. 15 deaths and 198 cases of the disease. the company that produces peanut butter for trader joe's is expanding the recall to raw and roasted peanuts. at least 35 people have been sickened by the outbreak. a huge loss for the new york yank dmis the baseball playoffs as they open the series against the tigers last night. derek jeter, the team's captain,
and the heart and soul of the yankees, broke his ankle on what seemed like a routine play. he's out for the rest of playoffs. the game went 12 innings and the dwrank kis lost. the space shuttle "endeavour" is late. the space shuttle is reaching its destination hours late. they had trouble navigating trees and utility poles. so far, no scratches to the shuttle. it's come inches from buildings and trees. it's late, it's l.a. >> you're keeping your emotions under wraps after staying up late at the yankees game. >> that was tough. there's always tomorrow in baseball. we're gonna win. and jake is, too.
turning now politics. the countdown to the next battle between president obama and mitt romney. both men are in intense training for the second debate on tuesday. with 23 days left before election day, the stakes could not be higher. many believe the president needs a knockout to regain momentum. it's "your voice, your vote." here's david kerley. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning. the president is holed up in a virginia resort for three days of debate preparation. his performance could blunt romney's place in the poll. the stage is being set. the ring, if you will. >> think the stakes are enormous, particularly for the president. >> reporter: round one went to romney. the second round, biden got obama back in the fight, even if the overall debate with ryan was a draw.
now with three days away, the candidates in their corners. mitt romney in boston the. president in williamsburg, virginia. taking three days off the campaign trail for practice. the president watched the polls tighten after the first debate. with romney moving ahead in virginia in one poll. >> how are you? >> reporter: team owe what tells us the president will go after romney on his tax cut plans and his ideas for winding down the war in afghanistan. in tuesday's debate, audience members will ask the questions in the town hall format. >> he's got to be able to go on offense without being offensive to the audience. he's got to go on offense and defend his vision, his path to where he'd take the country in the second term. >> i had a debate about a week ago. i did enjoy myself. >> reporter: as for romney, who is energized by the momentum and bigger crowds he's seen since
the debate. our debate coach says, keep it up. >> i can't imagine he would get overconfident. he needs to do much of the same he did in the first debate. >> reporter: the big face-off set for tuesday night. the owe what campaign just announced it has more than 4 million donors this cycle. that's a presidential record. >> thank you, david. let's bring in jake tapper for more. he's in washington filling in for george stephanopoulos on "this week." >> i'm senior white house correspondent. not chief. >> never get the title wrong. if it was up to me, you would be president united states. on "saturday night live" they were openly mocking joe biden's performance. i imagine that president obama is not going to take tack this
aggressive. but do you think he'll go for the 47% comment? >> think so. they are very different guys, president obama and vice president biden. the styles are different. think you'll see president obama much more aggressive. he'll talk about the 47% comments. in radio interview on friday, he seemed to blame the fact that didn't come up on the debate on the media. that was a suggestion that jim lehrer should have brought it up. >> do you think there's concern in the romney camp that the stage may be set for an obama comeback narrative? >> absolutely. they are very sensitive to that. they generally think that the media is in the tank for president obama any way. you have heard paul ryan and other members of the romney/ryan
team make that suggestion. they think the media is ready to write the obama comeback story. it's romney's proposition to try to stand in the way of that. >> how much concern are you hearing from both camps about the fine line they have to walk in terms of attacking while in this pretty delicate town hall style format where regular voters don't like that kind of vitriol? >> the bottom line is, when you attack people, if i were to attack you right now, your negative ratings would go up. people watching the show would think less of you. mine would, too, because people would think less of me for attacking. that's the delicate dance the candidates have to do. think the town hall makes that a challenge. >> jake tapper, our senior white house correspondent, soon to be chief who knows where he'll go from there.
jake, thank you very much. he has a big show today. his guests include ohio senator rob port nan. bo biden, son of joe biden. and our own martha raddatz, the moderator of the veep debate. and we'll have coverage of the next debate on tuesday. >> you want to take a breath there. >> a lot of promotion there. big weather news overnight. hail storms and at least one tornado. five states in the midwest took a beating last night. this large and nasty storm system is moving east with more states bracing for wild weather today. ginger zee all over this story. getting ready for her next jump from outer space. before that, the forecast. >> we have to get right into it. this is what happened yesterday. october is no stranger to severe weather. 35 tornadoes on average in october in the u.s. one likely but three reported
between college station and austin. that is damaging wind and hail there in the blue and yellow dots. this is from just along the texas state line in southern and central oklahoma. blinding rain. plenty of lightning. the winds up to 80 miles per hour that caused quite a bit of damage. we saw hail. one inch to larger. quarter-sized in some places. a big thanks to ktxs for sending those photos. today, we have to warn those folks who are in the crosshairs. from indianapolis to louisville, memphis, south to houston. along the same cold front, we'll be watching for storms. rain in northern michigan. so much more coming up in the nation's weather, including a check of the tropics. that's right. it's still hurricane season. well, it's billed as the free fall from the edge of space. at this hour, felix baumgartner is preparing a death-defying sky
dive. it will see him break the sound barrier. he plummeted to earth up to 70 miles an hour. he's ready to give it another go today. ryan owens is in roswell, new mexico. how sit looking? >> reporter: you know more than most how hard it is to get a body moving on a sunday morning. think about going from 0 to 700 miles an hour in 35 seconds. that is what this daredevil is planning to try with a leap right into the record books. >> no airplane ever did what the xs-1 is about to do. >> reporter: 65 years to the day after test pilot chuck yeager broke the sound barrier, felix baumgartner is trying to do it with his body. he plans to jump from 23 miles above the new mexican desert.
that's four times higher than most passenger planes fly. >> i like to be in the air. it's my second home. >> reporter: getting there has been a struggle. he's hitching a ride no the edge of space in a balloon that is 55 stories high. winds of just two miles an hour and it can't launch. >> whoa, gusty winds are taking that balloon down now. >> reporter: that's what happened last week when felix tried to set the record. >> abort due to gusty winds. >> reporter: this morning, he's hoping to go for it again. you can hardly blame him for wanting to get it over with. he's trained for five years. preparing his body for the stress and the real danger of falling farther, faster than any human has. >> when he steps off the capsule, there's virtually no air. he's in a vacuum. he has no control. if he steps off goofty, pushes
harder with one foot, it could induce a turn. we could get into the flat spin. >> reporter: there is so much that can go wrong, especially right after he jumps that his team has started calling that the 35 seconds of terror, which brings us to the real question of why would someone want to do this? they are hoping that scientists in the future will be able to design a better, stronger space suit for future astronauts, dan? >> fair enough. i try to still avoid a project with anything that calls for 35 seconds of terror. thank you, ryan. moving on to a different story. what do willie nelson, snoop dog have in common? they're been busted with drugs in the police stop to the stars. a check point in texas.
